6:15am
and >> that pop resulted in back surgery to treat the original injury to his disk, but as his body compensated because of the pain, he ultimately developed an excruciating condition similar to sciatica. >> it was awful. it was literally to the point i couldn't sit down more than five minutes. >> a doctor at saint mary's traced his pain to a joint in his pelvis that eartates the the sacro iliac joints. he recommended a new procedure known as i-fuse. it uses implants constructed from titanium. >> it's been in hip replacements, but now it's applied to the point of the pelvis where it's never been applied before. >> as the procedure begins, the doctor uses multiple x-rays to align temporary metal rods that will guide the hollow titanium implants into place in the pelvis.
6:16am
a separate monitor surrounding nerves to make sure there is no contact. >> we need to place them across the joints. >> once the rods are set, he passes the triangle-shaped io place. as seen in the animation provided by the manufacturer, three individual implants will ultimately stabilize the joint, relieving pressure on the nerve. technically we are done. finally the team makes one last check to make sure there is no contact with any surrounding nerves. he said about half the patients are able to return home the same day, and others require several days in the hospital for the initial recovery. the goal is to enable a patient to pretty much forget about it. because the best joint is the free joint. >> for jason the surgery has been followed by an intense regimen. physical therapy, but the results, he says, has been life-changing. >> it's been fantastic. no pain. i know it's early, but my quality of life, that's the first thing i noticed immediately.
6:17am
>> carolyn johnson, abc7 news. >> lisa argen is here now. you were telling me earlier i was telling people it was may 12th and it's the 19th. >> i thought that's what you said. >> i'm a little bit off. >> it doesn't usually happen. i didn't want to call you on it, but i did. >> well, whatever today's date is, the weather will be nice. >> and we have the same trend as we had last week. the warmer weather and the cool down early part of the week. live doppler 7hd. mostly clear conditions. there is some fog down around the central coast. we will be looking at temperatures today warmer than yesterday. that will bring us up above normal. 60s on the coast. here is a nice look outside where we are checking out all the clear conditions with numbers mainly in the 50s except along the coast. 53 in san francisco. oakland 52 and 54 mountain view. san jo sitting at 53, as well.
6:18am
so all around the bay we will be looking at fog-free conditions for the next 48 hours. then we will see a return to the onshore push. that will initiate changes. today, though, the winds and the clear sky allowing for the warmer start. 49 in santa rosa with 53 fairfield and 48 in los gatos. so our forecast highlights calling for mostly clear and warmer today. even warmer still tomorrow. we are talking about numbers coming up anywhere from three to about ten degrees today and then tomorrow we are going to add another five to seven degrees of warming. cooler days starting on tuesday and high pressure begins to loosen its grip and low pressure drops out of the north coast. here's a look where we were yesterday. we were certainly a little bit cooler, but we were warmer along the coast. this morning we are back in the 40s. seven degrees warmer than we were yesterday. but this morning pretty much everybody holding on to a little bit more heat and sun was
6:19am
officially up at 5:56. now we are lacking at the temperatures beginning to warm quicker than yesterday. so as high pressure builds in, we have low pressure diving down into the great basin and that's strengthening the high. as that happens the winds will pick up later on today into the evening hours. so the northwest winds getting a little breezy throughout the day, then they will shift briefly to the north. could get up to 40 miles an hour. higher elevations of the north bay and east bay hills. fire danger becomes a concern right on through tomorrow. so be careful throughout the day today and even though we have that on shore push on tuesday, still the hills are really dry out there. 82 morgan hill. 77 sunnyvale today. look at the 60s returning along the coast. that's where you go to beat the heat. 78 in palo alto. 70 downtown today. so about five to six degrees of warming in san francisco. numbers coming up another seven degrees here to the mid-80s for sonoma.

6:23am
6:24am
>> anyone who owns a musical instrument will tell you it can be quite personal. i'm told a good instrument possesses it's owner and vice versa. but as wayne freedman learned, sometimes it takes a while. ♪ >> they say a man's home is his castle. what they don't tell you is after he gets married his wife takes over and he's lucky to have one room left. by that standard, pete sears of san rafael is like the rest of us. a guy in a room surrounded by sentimental stuff. >> this is it. this is my room and that's why it's such a mess. >> but he will never throw any of it away. especially with base guitar because it's old and new and storied. >> if this guitar could talk? >> oh, god. >> you might remember pete sears from 1978 in a little band called the jefferson starship. that june they played a concert in germany, or they planned to,
6:25am
anyway, until gray slick got sick and the crowd rioted. >> you see the various shots here of a bit later on. >> a melee from which the brand new guitar was stolen. a loss because the dragon, as they called it, had a pedigree. >> this wood is the same. the guitar is made from the same tree that jerry garcia's guitar. >> the detail of the guitar is exquisite. the inlays there are silver, but they faded through the years. you look carefully at the eyes of the dragon, they glow. >> it takes you back to that era. >> all because three weeks ago a musician in germany opened his closet and saw the strange instrument he bought from a musician many years
6:26am
earlier. he tracked down the man who made it and after the cash changed hands, the circle closed. almost, anyway. because there is one other twist to the dragon. that day of the riot in 1978 would have been the dragon's first time on stage. it never happened until last week. ♪ >> that's pete sears on stage at bottle rock in napa. a debut 35 years delayed. >> an old friend. >> another story for that one room in castle. from san rafael, wayne freedman, abc7 news. >> fantastic story. we have a lot more to come in our next half-hour, including president obama's latest trip to the bay area. we will tell you when he will be in town and who is on the guest list to see him. also, their season may be over, but the celebrations live on. the city inviting warriors fans over for a job well done party. >> plus we are just 30 minutes from the start of bay to breakers, the quintessential

this time of the year, being the better team out there doesn't do you any good. you have to win on the scoreboard. >> you are never really, really in trouble until you lose your first game at home. it's a big win. i thought everybody elevated their game. i thought our game management at that point of the night is as good as it's been all year. >> before the giants took on the rockies, the manager bruce bochy called a rare meeting to talk about the players' sloppy play of late. it didn't help. san francisco made three more errors last night. this young lead was having a good time at coors field. the same could not be said for tim lincecum. he gets to this dribbler off the bat of jeff rutledge, but then throws the ball away. how bad was it for timmy? he falls down just trying to make a pitch. only his pride was hurt. still in the fourth rockies pitcher tyler chetwood singles up the minute. goes off lincecum's leg into center. make it 4-1. colorado had two more runs in the fifth on this blast by wilin rosario. 10-2, the final.

lincecum takes the loss, giving up 6 runs and 7 hits in five innings. it was star trek night at the coliseum. either that or those are raider fans. the royals took the lead in the first. billy butler drops this bloop single into no man's land. alex gordon scores to make it 1-0. kansas city loaded the bases. no outs in the second. but they get out of jam striking out escobar to get out of the inning. oakland took the lead in the sixth. and brandon moss out of a 4 for 30 slump to deep center. it brings home coco crisp. the a's edge 2-1. breaks malone gets the win, snapping a personal five-game losing streak. that's sports for sunday morning. i'm rick kwan. have a great day. >> up next, the face-to-face encounter you never want to have.
